The While Cube Gallery in London is currently hosting Marc Quinn’s ‘Evolution’ Exhibition.
The artist looks at pregnancy from the inside with nine large sculptures depicting the development of a fetus from 22 days to just before birth.
They have been carved in a pink marble whose mottling conveys the fine veins below the growing child’s skin.
The embryo works continue Quinn’s fascination with issues of genetics and DNA manipulation and have been developed from images in medical textbooks and scans of the 43-year-old artist’s own two children, aged six and two.
The show runs until 23 February.
